Can I import/export my mail into it like I can with Outlook using the .pst file format?

If I could do that I would move away from Outlook for good.

Here we go with the looks thing again. Who cares what it "looks" like if it works?!

Does look the same though and that was about the same time I tried it. Don't use e-mail enough to even warrant installing a third party e-mail. That's a lie. I do have Thunderbird installed, but only use my ISP's e-mail for more "official" stuff, which isn't very often.

it looks the same from the time I first used it in 2000

Yes, the default layout has changed very little since 2000, but everything you see in the screenshot can be changed to one's liking, including the icons, so I don't see how anyone has grounds to complain.

I agree with Reacon, though. It's an amazing email client & I've failed in finding anything that can match its capabilities. RITLabs also runs half-price sales on the professional version from time to time so that's something to keep in mind if you're looking to pick this one up.

This email client is amazing. Picked up on it the last time it was posted, and it's so configurable! I have it managing three of my email accounts with ease and efficiency.
